We’re sure you remember the Beginners Guide to Surf Photography the lovely Lucia Griggi put together and have been snapping away all last summer putting her tips into effect, but if you’ve got the feeling you could use just a little more in depth and on the spot advise, why not go shooting with her personally? That’s what she thought too and so she organised this workshop in Newquay, UK on April 5th, 2013.
